Apple is working on an update to the Face ID feature for iPhone. In the future, facial recognition should also work with a protective mask.

If you’re using an iPhone, you’ll soon be able to unlock your smartphone with a protective mask using facial recognition. Now, Apple has made the updated “Face ID” feature available for the first time in the iOS 15.4 beta operating system available to developers.

This is already possible, but only in a roundabout way – because until now an Apple Watch was also required if a mouth and nose cover is put on. To do this, Face ID will focus on “unique features in the eye area” in the future to recognize the user, like YouTuber Brandon Butch indicates. According to Spiegel Face unlock is said to have worked reliably in the first test with both medical masks and FFP2 masks. According to the IT portal “golem.de”, all this should but only works with iPhone 12 and newer models.

There will be new emoticons

Among other things, the new emoji should be available to consumers with iOS 15.4. as reported by “Emojipedia”. Among other things, there should be a disco ball, a pregnant man, a crutch and a slide.

Apple first introduced Face ID on the iPhone X in 2017. It is not yet known when the finished update to iOS 15.4 will be released.
